(Reuters) - T-Mobile US Inc rolled out various promotions and cheap data plans for businesses to take away market share from larger rivals AT&T Inc and Verizon Communications Inc.

Businesses with more than 1,000 lines will pay $10 per month for each line. Other businesses with multiple lines will be charged $15 a line. Every line comes with 1 gigabyte of data and allows unlimited calls and text messages.

Verizon and AT&T accounts for 87 percent of the $83 billion in wireless revenue from businesses, T-Mobile Chief Executive John Legere said at the "Uncarrier 9" event in New York on Wednesday.

T-Mobile said it is throwing in a free GoDaddy.com domain, website and email addresses from Microsoft Office 365, as well as discounts for families of business subscribers using its service.
